How did we get here and where can we go next?
VMs contain many assumptions about how programs typically operate – and VM developers and researchers have many assumptions about how VMs typically operate. In this talk, I will present a number of partly, or wholly, unstated assumptions that we have about VMs and their development. Together they may help partly, although probably not wholly, how VMs got to where they are today – and also offer suggestions for how we can things differently in the future.
